Another time and place...

"Daddy -- Remember the guy who played the guitar at my apt. last summer? This is his first book. I enjoyed reading it, even though I'm not an avid science fiction reader. Hope you enjoy it! Love, geri"

And the inscription:
"14-May-83
For Dan-Gerri's Father--
[Book title & author]
with regards
and all that stuf..."

Followed by the familiar, indecipherable signature of Steven K. Zoltan Brust.

Twenty-one years later on the very same date, I bought Toad Woods.

Tucked inside that paperback of Jhereg, is a postcard of the Henry VIII Inn and Lodge in Bridgeton, MO.

"Dear Daddy,

Hi! I'm in St. Louis for the week-end! I'm at Czarkon, a small convention - drove/rode down in Fred's van Thursday late night, along with Steve & Reen Brust. I've never been in Missouri before, or through Iowa for that matter - but know [sic] I have added 2 more states to my list of those visited/seen. The convention is quiet, but fun. Merry Christmas! Love, geri"

Czarkon quiet? That's not a term I've ever considered using to describe it since.

I miss hearing the gang play music together. Some fun times there.

The Henry the 8th hotel. Now that brings back some memories. Was at the hotel for the last convention held there before they tore it down for the airport parking lot. I wished some of the new fans could have got to see it. I mean any hotel that can have you walk in a hall way and go up a story or loose a wing of rooms has got to be seen and experianced. Man i miss that hotel....
